Yes, the Treasury Department can garnish Veterans' and Social Security benefits for a limited number of reasons: . Repay child support arrears . Unpaid alimony . Delinque…nt federal taxes (IRS) . Debt to other federal agencies (even the VA) Generally, the government only withholds 15% of the benefit amount for government debt, but they often garnish larger amounts for mandatory alimony and child support payments. The only benefits the US government can't attach are Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments, a form of welfare for the disabled and retired people age 65 and older.

Yes. You need to see a lawyer to understand your legal options.
Yes. It is, legally, possible.
Generally now with a few exceptions, depending on where you live. Here is the pecking order for garnishments: 1) Taxes 2) Criminal Fines (Usually related to restitution… or fraud) 3) Child Support (limited amount can be taken - depends on the other two) 4) Punitive law suits 5) Creditor action from judgments All those can be taken from your benefit check(s). Some states may allow other garnishments but usually they follow federal laws. If it is a simple debt like a credit card, your 401K and disability cannot be touched. If you hurt or kill someone while you are driving drunk, you cannot escape having to pay, which is proper and just. Most jurisdictions require an extra 10% of the garnishment to be withheld, just in case. Example: you get garnered for $100. The courts force your bank to hold $110.00. Note: if you or your spouse own anything of significant value generally those can be forcibly taken, sold, and proceeds applied to the garnisher's claim by a Conversion of Collateral . If your spouse is financially well-to-do, it is quite possible they can take THEIR money to satisfy YOUR problem, if you have a joint bank account or file tax returns jointly.
Generally pensions cannot be garnished by judgment creditors. A few U.S. states have exceptions when it pertains to private pension annuities. All SS benefits are exempt by fe…deral law from creditor garnishment. All pensions, private and otherwise can be garnished for tax arrearages and child support obligations/arrearages. A few U.S. states also allow the levy of pension funds when it relates to spousal maintainence/alimony. CAVEAT: If you have your pension/annuity/whatever directly deposited into a bank account the creditor CAN lien your bank account . Upon their deposit, once those payments are converted to cash, the creditor has access to them. It then becomes YOUR burden to prove to the court which of those funds derive SOLELY from your pension/annuity income and should be untouchable.
In some cases, yes. When creditors sue the debtor and receive a judgment order from the court they can implement it as a wage garnishment against pensions that are not protect…ed by state and/or federal law. All SS benefits/pensions are 100% exempt from creditor attachment. In most instances military and government pensions (railroad retirement, USPS, etc.) are also exempt. However, private pensions can be garnished to some extent depending upon the laws of the state in which the debtor resides.
No, SS, military, railroad, government and most private pensions are exempt from creditor judgments/garnishments. There are exceptions in a few states as to private pensions…, but the possibility of judgment action depends upon the debtor's overall financial situation.
Government pensions and Social Security can generally be garnished by only a few agencies. Student loans, IRS , child support , recouping by the government of overpayments by …them . Private pensions , I wouldn't know, but no doubt someone will be along to help you shortly.
A garnishee can be placed on any income Except That the garnishee can not lower the persons income below a certain point. The myth of you can't garnishee pensions comes f…rom the fact that many retirees are below that level already. Head of Household wages, Pension, Life Insurance, Annuity (some) IRA, Disability are protected from most attachments... Except from things like taxes & child support. The original question is too vague to know why the posted asked about garnishment. See section 222.11 of the Florida statutes.
